MONTICELLO (WCIA) — Monticello wrestler Matt Kerr is the WCIA 3 Athlete of the Week. The Sages senior beat defending state champ Micah Downs from Unity in the 182-pound division of the Class 1A Robinson Regional title match over the weekend. Now at 41-3, Kerr has his sights set on winning the sectional and advancing back to state.
“Going into that match, I didn’t really know where I was at, so I was just going to try my best against the best guy in the state, and see where I was,” Kerr said. “Now it feels really good to me knowing that I have brothers by my side all the way through state hopefully. I’m working hard on pushing them hard, and they’re also doing the same for me.”
Kerr is now eligible for a $500 scholarship we’ll give away in June. One boy and one girl from our pool of 40 weekly winners will take home the award. To nominate the next WCIA 3 Athlete of the Week, click here: https://www.wcia.com/athlete-of-the-week/#//
